Liberal Voter ID Philosophy Attached Elsewhere

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/20

Patron: I want to buy this AR-15.
Gun Shop Owner: Are you at least 18?
Patron: Yup, wanna see my ID?
Gun Shop Owner: No need. I trust you.
Patron: Alright. I also want to buy this .38 Special.
Gun Shop Owner: Are you at least 21?
Patron: Yup, sure am.
Gun Shop Owner: Have a nice day.

Patron: I want a case of Budweiser.
Cashier: Are you at least 21?
Patron: Yup.
Cashier: Have a nice day.

Officer: Do you have a Driver’s License, proper registration and car insurance?
Driver: Yes, I do.
Officer: Very well. Have a safe trip.

It’s not very important to check any of that stuff. After all, it’s illegal to buy rifles under 18 or pistols under 21. It’s illegal to buy beer under 21. It’s illegal to drive an unregistered car without a license and insurance. So people won’t do it. And we can trust them to be honest.

And besides that, it might be raaaaacist to demand proof of any of that. Because, somehow blacks cannot be expected to live up to the same high standards of whites.

And that is the Liberal Voter ID Philosophy tied to other issues. Do read the Liberal rants on Voter ID Laws and pay special attention to Perry’s rants.

Rick Perry Signs Texas Incandescent Law

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/20

If you live in Texas, you will be able to continue to buy incandescent light bulbs after the Federal ban is in place. The Texas Legislature passed, and Governor Perry signed, a law that nullifies the Federal ban. Very Tenther, TEA Party, Free Market of him. From Tina Korbe:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry today signed a law that will free Texans from the federal government’s impending incandescent light bulb ban:

The measure, sent to Gov. Rick Perry for consideration [he subsequently signed it], lets any incandescent light bulb manufactured in Texas – and sold in that state – avoid the authority of the federal government or the repeal of the 2007 energy independence act that starts phasing out some incandescent light bulbs next year.

Texas wasn’t the first state to explore this kind of legislation: South Carolina has advanced a similar bill and, last year, the Arizona legislature passed a bill to the same effect — but Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed it.

You know who will be up in arms about this? Errr, I mean, you know who will be up in arms about this.
